Halliwell Road 1966

Composed and recorded in London, 'Halliwell Road 1966' features twenty six compositions for strings, piano and electronics. Themes revolve around memories of a fractured childhood in Bolton, Lancashire, England, during the 1960's. Several other pieces are inspired by my own photography.

Composed, performed and produced by MW Pinsent.

The cover image is based on a contemporary Google Street View screen-grab of Halliwell Road. This was the approximate view from my grandfather's hardware shop situated on the other side of the road. The green and red pole is a remnant of Bolton's old electric tram line. When I was a kid I would touch this pole for luck on my way to school. The shop was in a row of victorian houses demolished in the mid 1970's to make way for new housing.
